...this reimagining is uniquely Riddell, and every bit as sumptuous as you would expect
Chris Riddell joins the crowd of illustrators who have visualized Alice since John Tenniel. Whereas — to choose one notable predecessor — Helen Oxenbury made the text fresh and cozy, Riddell has reinstated its oddness with his glamorous, fantastical caricatures and super-skillful line. He has also made the Mad Hatter female
He has now taken on the big challenge: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. As with all his pictures of children, Alice is huge-eyed and delicate, but his cartoonist’s eye means he does a lovely Gryphon and Mock Turtle. This is quite a hefty hardback.
Riddell breathes new life into Alice, giving her a striking dark bob. A delicious new edition, with colour plates and pencil sketches by this remarkable artist.
